Murphy's law

Good day to you all !

I am just back from 3 days of workshops in Melbourne 

Apologies if you have messaged or emailed me as I was flat chat and had zero time to respond to ANYTHING 

This is brief as I DO have people that NEED responses and I am also off to Teach this am at Hobby Sew Top Ryde.

I was very excited to receive an email late last week telling me that not only was I one of 66 artists profiled in the Uppercase Compendium - I was also to have one of my pictures of my wedding ring quilt in progress on the cover.
Murphy's law would be that this quilt was chosen for a cover. 

Funnily making this quilt, it was when I was having a moment with lots of thoughts in my head and I wanted to mindlessly sew. 
I wasn't concentrating on fabric design choices or placement and truthfully my seams aren't all matching either. 

It feels like a true reflection of how I felt at the time and I am honoured to have it shown on the cover of this fantastic publication.
I have also just finished discussions with Quiltsmith in Sydney to teach this quilt 
31st Jan 2016
Give them a call to book in

Like a typical creative person I have agreed to do a workshop on a class for a quilt that I haven't finished!

I have a pretty tight deadline and hope to have it on display hanging in the shop mid November..... Wish me luck !

Anyway apologies for briefness - I need to dash to teach my Hobbysew class.

If your waiting on advice/ instructions/ general replies I will get onto it after my class today !

Thank you

Bee's Knees

The last 4 weeks have been crazy 

Crazy good - not crazy bad

 School Holidays 
- which included a trip to Avoca with a few other families for almost a week

- A lunch with Better Homes and Gardens Australia to launch the Better Homes Live show

10 Kids + 10 Quilts = Mayhem

- Shipping 3/4 kids & a husband off for a final hurrah to the snow for a few days whilst I stayed home and prepped for the Brisbane show (I crazily made 24 meters of bunting)

- Getting school ready for the big two kids 

- Then Jetting off to Brisbane with the two little kids for 8 days, for the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair ...........

and back into some semblance of a routine.

The Brisbane show was great, I had 21 of my 22 quilts on display from my book By The Block.

It really felt very indulgent being able to hang all the book quilts in one space (They took up a little over 20 meters of space). It was lovely for me to see them all together (minus one).

I have some pictures on Instagram and Facebook

I met lots of lovely lovely people in Brisbane - which you will see in my pictures !

My computer is being unfriendly and wont let me upload the pictures to the blog :(

I also had a quick interview with Tim Cox from ABC Brisbane Radio
On the Weekends program 10th Oct 2015
I start babbling at 2:13:35

I'm off to sort out my iphoto issue
and think of what I forgot to tell you

Siobhan Xx
